As America has struggled through the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been difficult to find a path toward health.
Over the last few days, that path became a little clearer. CVS is closer to having an authorized vaccine to treat COVID-19.
Still, the question that so many have is “How would I get that vaccine?”
CVS Health has entered into a contract with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. CVS was selected as one of the official COVID-19 Vaccination Program Providers.
The United States government will make a supply of the COVID-19 vaccine available to CVS Health when authorized and available to administer in pharmacies nationwide. The vaccine will be offered to the public through its 10,000 locations, following established vaccine prioritization guidelines.
CVS Health is already working to enable administration of the vaccine once it is available for pharmacies nationwide.
CVS is proud of and thankful for the efforts of pharmacists, nurse practitioners and pharmacy technicians. They have served many communities across the U.S. and helped conduct nearly seven million COVID-19 tests. CVS knows they stand ready to do the same thing when COVID-19 vaccinations are available.
All of us are still in a global pandemic and there are so many questions. Stay informed on CVS’ response.
